I live here in the Puget Sound region of Washington where we don't get a lot of snow and ice but I do kinda miss those white winters that I got to experience when I lived in Idaho. I don't really miss the cold but the site of the pristine snows after a storm were a sight to behold. Those icicles hanging from the trees and feeling of being hushed will always linger in my memories.
So I had a good start with the concept that I wanted to do for this challenge. And just look at all the goodies that I received to assist with bringing it to life. You would think that it would be a piece of cake. Ummm... not to so much.
I actually started out making a charm bracelet with all those wonderful white and clear beads but my hands quickly let me know that my weather here is being too wet and cold for any of that malarky. Besides, a charm bracelet wouldn't have this wonderful polymer focal from Andrew Thornton.
Enter plan two which I think I am actually much happier with anyways. I used that beautiful focal along with the larger what lucite beads. I found some Indonesian recycled glass in the same color as the focal and used that to bring in more of the colder blue colors. It is all wire wrapped to a pewter chain with a sterling S-hook so the length on this frosty necklace is adjustable.
Now that you have seen my humble offering be sure to check out what everyone else has done. Just click here to get a list of everyone. I just love seeing the end results that differ so greatly when we all start from the same place.
